Friday Random Ten

Giant Sand "Increment of Love" proVISIONS
Space Negros "Sweep" Dig Archaeology
Beck "Motorcade" The Information
Calexico "Woven Birds" Feast of Wire
Youssou N'Dour "Hey You" Set
Pine Top Smith "Pine Top's Boogie Woogie" Martin Scorsese Presents: The Blues
Maximo Park "Books from Boxes" Our Earthly Pleasures
Patsy Cline "A Stranger in My Arms" Golden Hits Collection
Wilco "Box Full of Letters" A.M.
Liz Phair "Bionic Eyes" Liz Phair

bonus
Smokey Robinson & the Miracles "Tears of a Clown" An Introduction to the Motown Elite 9000 Series

Worse things to end on a classic after a decidedly non-classic list, even in a semipopular way. Still, both Giant Sand and Calexico, a favorite early Wilco, a Maximo Park I want to think is informed by Walter Benjamin, and if it is in my ears, that's enough.

I have to post again just to give the next word verification: liblogin. I might have to adopt that as my new pseudonym.
